About the event
Southampton Arts with Southampton Public Library celebrates National "Read-a-Book" month!
Come and be enthralled with local artists and designers WILL KRISZA & BUFFY SHIELDS featuring their fantastical paintings and tiny sculptures EXHIBIT.
WILL KRISZA is known for his surreal and abstract painting methods. He is a self-taught artist who’s been painting for over 30 years. In that time, Will has developed some interesting techniques. He likes to use spray paints and acrylic mediums to create thin coats of colour, producing an almost luminescent effect on the canvas. The end result gives his paintings an otherworldly glow. Will is inspired by science and the natural world. His paintings feature animals as exotic as giraffes and as every day as the family dog, Molly. He likes to think of his work as “Surrealist Sci-Fi” because it often incorporates alien or celestial themes. He also takes inspiration from plants and biological structures, like cells and DNA strands.
POSTPONED: BUFFY SHIELDS (Buffy the Tiny Slayer) is a professional makeup and hair artist for film and television in Toronto. Buffy's side project involves creating very realistic but extremely tiny sculptures of everyday things in your home. Bring a magnifying glass ;)
